j<foricE. 

In submitting my (Bulb Catalogue^ for i8y2, to 
my patrons, I can assure them the (Bulbs are this 
season of the sa^me superior quality, as I have had 
the pleasure of supplying in former years. Hav= 
ing imported direct, in large quantities, the past 
twenty years from the m^ost celebrated groivers in 
Holland, the (Bulbs here ofered may be confidently 
relied upon as the best of their respective kinds. 

Congress, at its last Session, having limted packa= 
ges by mail^ to tivelve ounces, and at a charge of two 
cents for every two ounces or fraction thereof, only 
small packages of a few (Bulbs can now be sent by 
mail, — all such orders should be accompanied with 
a remittance to the a^nount, and tivelve cents addi= 
tional to cover postage. (But in express or large 
orders the purchaser may remit, or the articles will 
be forwarded C. 0. (D., at his option.

CATALOGUE 



Hyacinths, 

The Hyacinth is, perhaps, the most popular and nnost universally cultivated of 
all bulbous flowers. The cultivation of this bulb for commerce is confined to Haar- 
len (Holland) and its neighborhood — hundreds of acres being entirely occupied by 
it. A field of Hyacinths in full bloom is described as a sight gorgeous in the ex- 
treme. Need we be surprised at its great popularity, when we consider, it is of the 
easiest culture, perfectly hardy, has delicacy and variety of coloring, and delicious 
perfume. 

Culture of Hyacinths in Glasses, 

It is not well to commence too soon with glasses ; from the beginning of October 
up to December is the best time. Fill the glasses with water, (rain water is the 
best,) place in the bulbs so that the base of each barely touches the water, and put 
them in a dark, dry place ; when the roots are about two or three inches long, they 
may be brought to the light, but not too suddenly exposed ; as the foliage and 
trusses advance, give all the air possible, otherwise they will be drawn up too weak ; 
the glasses should be kept filled with water, and should be turned frequently to pre- 
vent ill-shaped plants. 

Culture of Hyacinths in Pots. 

Hyacinths required to bloom by Christmas, should be potted early in September; 
the following instructions for treatment of spring-flowering bulbs will be quite appli- 
cable to these, excepting that they may be taken from the plunging bed and placed 
in heat a little sooner than for later-flowering kinds. 

Hyacinths to flower in spring, and for succession, should be planted in October, 
November and December; the best compost for them is one-half turfy fibrous loam 
well rotted, third part good old decomposed manure, fourth part fine rotted leaf 
mould; to every barruwful of the above compost, add one peck clean sharp sand. 
The sized pots generally used are five and six inch. Hyacinths, as well as all other 
plants, require good drainage ; therefore, place about an inch of potsherd in the bot- 
tom of the pot, with a layer of rotten cow dung, fill up the pot with the compost, 
with a little sharp sand on the top, on which place the bulb, pressing it firmly down, 
filling round with the soil just to leave the crown in sight. When this is done, give 
them a good soaking of water, taking care to let them have plenty of time to drain 
before plunging; choose a hard dry place out of doors to stand them on, covering 
them over six or eight inches with old tan or ashes, leaving them thus till the pots 
are v/ell filled with roots ; then remove them to a pit or frame, gradually exposing 
them to light; after which, place them in a warm room or house. Attention must 
be paid to watering ; and as the foliage and trusses advance, occasional waterings of 
liquid manure is very eBsential, When the blooms begin to expand, the plants may 
be taken to a cool room, where there is plenty of light. 

Hyacinths for Beds or Borders. 

Hyacinths will succeed in any well-drained soil. If of a very adhesive nature, add 
two or three inches of sharp sand and about the same quantity of well decayed 
manure; then dig the soil eighteen inches deep, well mixing the sand and manure 



with the soil, Sandy loams require nothing more than the addition of manure and 
deep digging. Plant, when the soil is dry, in rows about nine or ten inches apart, 
and a foot between the rows. The crown of the bulb should be three or four inches 
under the surface of the soil. Before severe freezing, cover the bed with three or 
four inches of old tan, hops or short litter, to exclude frosts. This, however, should 
be removed early in spring. 

Double Syacinths^ 

The very earliest are marked thus **, the early *. These are suitable for growing 
in pots and glasses, but are not quite as early as the single. The double and late 
varieties succeed best in pots, boxes or open ground.

however the fact. They are earlier, much superior for forcing, have larger spikes, 
with greater number of bells, clear bright colors and more Dowerful fragrance.

Tulips, 

The Tulip is well known to every cultivator of Flowers, and is universally ad- 
mired for its bright and showy colors. It is of the easiest cultivation, being perfectly 
hardy, and grows freely in any ordinary soil. Many of the tall growing and late 
blooming varieties are only suitable for garden cultivation, whilst the early flower- 
ing, dwarf varieties, are admirable for forcing. Autumn is best for planting, and if 
the ground is prepared as recommended for Hyacinths, they will succeed to perfec- 
tion. In planting, cover the bulbs three or four inches, and about four inches apart, 
and nine or ten inches between the rows. 



Early Dwarf Uuc Van Tholl Tulips, 

The habits of this class of Tulips is very dwarf and early, with brilliant colors, are 
excellent for forcing — the earliest.

Crocus— {Crocus Vermis,) 

Culture of the Crocus in the open ground. 

Choose a deep, light, rich soil, in an open situation ; plant the bulbs in October, 
November or December, two or three inches deep, and about two inches apart, cov- 
ering them with the fine mould. The Crocus, used for edging beds or borders, or 
planted in lines along the edges of walks, or in clumps, has a beautiful effect during 
the early spring, if the colors are tastefully arranged. 

Culture of the Crocus in pots, ornamental vases, ivire baskets, d'C. 

Commence planting about the middle of October, in fine sandy soil. For pots or 
vases, a few may be planted every three weeks, for a succession. In planting in 
wire baskets, procure some green moss, with which line the inside of the basket, to 



12 

prevent the mould going through; fill up with the soil recommended, and plant the 
bulbs on the top, two inches apart, half covering them; then place moss between the 
bulbs to give the surface a beautiful green appearance. When they begin to show 
flower, a liberal supply of water will be required. 

Crocusaes may be grown in glasses, with the same treatment as the Hyacinth.

CATALOGUE 



Hyacinths, 

The Hyacinth is, perhaps, the most popular and most universally cultivated of 
all bulbous flowers. The cultivation of this bulb for commerce is confined to Haar- 
len (Holland) and its neighborhood — hundreds of acres being entirely occupied by 
it. A field of Hyacinths in full bloom is described as a sight gorgeous in the ex- 
treme. Need we be surprised at its great popularity, when we consider, it is of the 
easiest culture, perfectly hardy, has delicacy and variety of coloring, and delicious 
perfume. 

Culture of Hyacinths in Glasses, 

It is not well to commence too soon with glasses ; from the beginning of October 
up to December is the best time. Fill the glasses with water, (rain water is the 
best,) place in the bulbs so that the base of each barely touches the water, and put 
them in a dark, dry place ; when the roots are about two or three inches long, they 
may be brought to the light, but not too suddenly exposed ; as the foliage and 
trusses advance, give all the air possible, otherwise they will be drawn up too weak ; 
the glasses should be kept filled with water, and should be turned frequently to pre- 
vent ill-shaped plants. 

Culture of Hyacinths in Pots. 

Hyacinths required to bloom by Christmas, should be potted early in September; 
the following instructions for treatment of spring-flowering bulbs will be quite appli- 
cable to these, excepting that they may be taken from the plunging bed and placed 
in heat a little sooner than for later-flowering kinds. 

Hyacinths to flower in spring, and for succession, should be planted in October, 
November and December; the best compost for them is one-half turfy fibrous loam 
well rotted, third part good old decomposed manure, fourth part fine rotted leaf 
mould; to every barrowful of the above compost, add one peck clean sharp sand. 
The sized pots generally used are five and six inch. Hyacinths, as well as all other 
plants, require good drainage ; therefore, place about an inch of potsherd in the bot- 
tom of the pot, with a layer of rotten cow dung, fill up the pot with the compost, 
with a little sharp sand on the top, on which place the bulb, pressing it firmly down, 
filling round with the soil just to leave the crown in sight. When this is done, give 
them a good soaking of water, taking care to let them have plenty of time to drain 
before plunging; choose a hard dry place out of doors to stand them on, covering 
them over six or eight inches with old tan or ashes, leaving them thus till the pots 
are well filled with roots ; then remove them to a pit or frame, gradually exposing 
them to light; after which, place them in a warm room or house. Attention must 
be paid to watering ; and as the foliage and trusses advance, occasional waterings of 
liquid manure is very essential. When the blooms begin to expand, the plants may 
be taken to a cool room, where there is plenty of light. 

Hyacinths for Beds or Borders, 

Hyacinths will succeed in any well-drained soil. If of a very adhesive nature, add 
two or three inches of sharp sand and about the same quantity of well decayed 
manure; then dig the soil eighteen inches deep, well mixing the sand and manure 



with the soil. Sandy loams require nothing more than the addition of manure and 
deep digging. Plant, when the soil is dry, in rows about nine or ten inches apart, 
and a foot between the rows. The crown of the bulb should be three or four inches 
under the surface of the soil. Before severe freezing, cover the bed with three or 
four inches of old tan, hops or short litter, to exclude frosts. This, however, should 
be removed early in spring. 



Double Hyacinths. 

The very earliest are marked thus **, the early *. These are suitable for growing 
in pots and glasses, but are not quite as early as the single. The double and late 
varieties succeed best in pots, boxes or open ground.

Tulips. 

The Tulip 13 well known to every cultivator of Flowers, and is universally ad- 
mired for its bright and showy colors. It is of the easiest cultivation, being perfectly 
hardy, and grows freely in any ordinary soil. Many of the tall growing and late 
blooming varieties are only suitable for garden cultivation, whilst the early flower- 
ing, dwarf varieties, are admirable for forcing. Autumn is best for planting, and if 
the ground is prepared as recommended for Hyacinths, they will succeed to perfec- 
tion. In planting, cover the bulbs three or four inches, and about four inches apart, 
and nine or ten inches between the rows. 



Early Dwarf I}uc Van Tholl Tulips, 

The habits of this class of Tulips is very dwarf and early, with brilliant colors, are 
excellent for forcing — the earliest.

Crocus — {Crocus Vernus,) 

Culture of the Crocus in the open ground. 

Choose a deep, light, rich soil, in an open situation ; plant the bulbs in October, 
November or December, two or three inches deep, and about two inches apart, cov- 
ering them with the fine mould. The Crocus, ustd for edging beds or borders, or 
planted in lines along the edges of walks, or in clumps, has a beautiful eflfect during 
the early spring, if the colors are tastefully arranged. 

Culture of the Crocus in pots, ornamental vases, wire baskets, tfr. 

Commence planting about the middle of October, in fine sandy soil. For pots or 
vases, a few may be planted every three weeks, for a succession. In planting in 
wire baskets, procure some green moss, with which line the inside of the basket, to 



12 

prevent the mould going through; fill up with the soil recommended, and plant the 
bulbs on the top, two inches apart, half covering them; then place moss between the 
bulbs to give the surface a beautiful green appearance. When they begin to show 
flower, a liberal supply of water will be required. 

Crocusaes may be grown in glasses, with the same treatment as the Hyacinth.

Ranunculus, 

One of the most charming of spring flowers, not quite as hardy as the other Dutch 
bulbs. If planted out in fall, it should have a warm, dry situation. Planted early 
in spring, it succeeds well. It also does finely in pots.
